Introduction

As a golfing publication, one of the most common questions we receive at My Golf Insider pertains to whether a new generation of clubs is superior to its previous model and whether upgrading is worthwhile. While we cover the topic of managing expectations for clubs year over year, TaylorMade’s latest offerings come with significant changes that are worth exploring. The primary highlight is the increase in carbon, and how it’s improving these drivers significantly. Join us as we delve into the 2024 “Carbonwoods” and see how they measure up against the competition for the everyday golfer.

Design

Fans of the original Stealth driver will be pleased to know that the 2024 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus maintains its predecessor’s iconic aesthetics. The black crown and red face remain unchanged and look fantastic. However, the new matte black leading edge is a noticeable improvement, reducing glare and contrast against the ball. The “T” logo on the glossy part of the crown serves as an alignment aid, while the compact “D” shape slightly favors the toe.

The TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus boasts a red Twist Face that stands out from other drivers, as well as customizable weights and an adaptable loft and lie hosel. Although the overall design and color scheme remains the same, the addition of silver and chrome weights adds a touch of elegance to the driver’s aesthetics.

Sound & Feel

The sound and feel of the TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus driver have remained consistent with what has given TaylorMade so much success in the past. The driver produces a solid “tick” sound upon impact that is relatively quiet. When struck away from the center of the face, the sound changes to a “tock,” which is just enough to know that you missed the sweet spot but not enough to compromise the driver’s feel. This driver maintains the same sound and feel that many golfers love about TaylorMade woods and drivers.

Performance

The 2024 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus driver offers exceptional performance with a highly adjustable design suitable for various golfers. Its unique feature “fargiveness” combines impressive ball speeds and forgiveness, making it an outstanding driver. The use of carbon fiber enhances ball speed by reducing the weight of the face compared to its predecessor, the original Stealth. The weight saved is then redistributed to the perimeter of the face to improve ball speed on off-center hits.

If you prioritize forgiveness over adjustability, the Stealth 2 driver might be a better option for you. You can check it out here.

Additionally, the Stealth 2 Plus driver provides an improved launch and spin characteristics. The mid-launch flight trajectory allows the ball to penetrate through any weather or wind conditions while keeping the spin in check for maximum distance and roll-out. Even on mishits, the numbers stay consistent across the face, delivering remarkable distances, even on poor strikes.
